Containers do more than store big stuff on ships or trains. Dockers are more than a pair of pants. Both are new cutting edge technologies of that are modernizing data centers. But Docker Containers create a storage challenge. In our latest episode of Storage Switzerland’s #MeetTheCEO we talk to ClusterHQ Founder and CEO Mark Davis about Docker Containers and how his company looks to solve the storage problems that it creates.
Storage Switzerland’s Founder and Lead Analyst George Crump and Digital Services Manager Charlie Hodges talk to Mark about his company, his background and why he has such a burning passion for Container Data Management.
ClusterHQ is not Davis’ first go at being a CEO. He was the founder and CEO of Virsto before its acquisition by VMware, and led Creekpath Systems until being acquired by Opsware. Davis joined ClusterHQ as a member of its Board of Directors in June of 2014, and was named CEO in September of that year. He replaced Luke Marsden, who stayed at ClusterHQ as the company’s CTO. Davis has also worked for Evolveware, Convergenet Technologies, StorageTek, Sun Microsystems and Oracle. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Talena and is an advisor and investor in several startup companies and startup accelerators.
ClusterHQ builds container management software that strives to enable broader adoption of container technology in production environments. The company’s product Flocker is an open source software designed to meet data portability requirements of distributed, microservices-based applications. The goal is to move containers and their associated data volumes between servers as a single unit.
